I'm now going to seriously lower the tone: if you are of a nervous disposition, or if you harbour delusions that I am some kind of sophisticate, please look away now.
Who am I kidding? You're all still here, aren't you? Nobody thinks I'm a sophisticate?
Well, don't say I didn't warn you.
I have a question for you.
I was inspired by something that Charlie wrote over on Late Night Radio (one of the first blogs I ever found, actually. Discovered using the "next blog" button and still a regular read).
Over to you Charlie:
"after years of reluctance, and after the longtime recommendations of all 3 roommates and several of my friends, I finally found an opportunity and peed in the shower last night. I didn't like it, and don't think there will ever be an encore."
As I said over there, on the one hand, that's gross. On the other hand, his roomates have clearly been pissing in his shower for months, so it's partial payback, right?
Before you take the moral high ground here, think on this:
Have you ever had a bedroom with a sink? Could have been a room at University, a room at college, could have been a bedsit, perhaps even in a prison - wherever.
Here's the question:
Did you ever take a piss in that sink?
Come on now. Be honest. You can tell me.
